suji ka halwa recipesuji ka halwa recipe | sooji halwa for satyanarayan pooja | sheera recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. the simple sooji ka halwa which is prepared for day to day use or breakfast may not involve banana slices. but is a must if suji ka halwa is prepared as offering or prasadam for satyanarayan pooja. also the quantity of ghee is comparatively more and hence can be reduced if it is not prepared as offering.

the recipe for suji ka halwa is very similar with the texture to popular rava kesari. however the recipe procedure and taste are completely different and more importantly the purpose is completely different. sooji halwa is prepared mainly with the combination of water and milk and hence it gets the creamy and smooth texture. moreover the ingredients like sugar, ghee and rava added to this recipe should be of equal proportions. that is the common and must standard especially if sooji ka halwa is prepared as offering for satyanarayan pooja. in addition the main and significant ingredient is the sliced banana. in maharashtra the banana are boiled and cooked before adding it to sheera but in my native we directly added it while cooking and hence i have followed the same.

sooji halwa for satyanarayan poojathe recipe is extremely simple for suji ka halwa, yet some easy tips and recommendations while preparing it. firstly, roast the rava on lolw flame till it turns aromatic, else there are chances for halwa to turn sticky. also, adding fresh homemade ghee makes prasada more rich and flavourful. finally, adding ewual proportion of rava, ghee, milk, water and banana is must if preparing for prasada else you can reduce to your choice.
